For 19 years Drowned in Sound has championed the artists we love and created a space online for a community of music obsessives. However, we now need you help.
Despite 2.3 million visitors in 2018, the online advertising model that supports our free service of forums and recommendations can no longer reliably cover our running costs. I am now looking at some fairly major changes to refine what we do in order to continue.
If the site has ever turned you on to a record you love, given you a welcome distraction or been somewhere you’ve spent time, I would really appreciate a contribution to help keep the website online. The price of a pint from even 1% of our visitors would make a huge difference.
